Virginia Tech has partnered with ParkMobile to provide a convenient, contactless electronic payment option for parking on the Blacksburg campus.
We're excited about parked mobile and getting part mobile on campus for everybody. It is an app that you can add to your phone and allows you to pay for parking and allows you to pay for the amount of parking you need. You don't have to pay for the whole day. If you just need to be on campus for an hour, you can pay for an hour of time. It's for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Anybody who needs to be on campus. If you don't have a parking permit, we ask that you either come to our office and pursue to daily pass or you can use part mobile, the purchase, the amount of time that you need to be on campus. When they enforcement officer goes up to the vehicle, they'll enter your license plate. Your license plate is tied through your part mobile account. And so when we enter your license plate, part mobile notifies our handheld device that hey, that vehicles already paid, it's paid through a certain time or paid for the day. We plan this prior to covert, but it dovetails so perfectly with what the way Campus assorted transitioned through the covert experience. We have people now who work from home or students who only need to come to campus occasionally, and they don't want to buy an annual permit. Annual permits are still available. And if you're on campus everyday or if you're on campus three or four times a week, you'll permit is your best bet. But if you only need to be on campus and occasionally, part mobile allows you to just by the amount of time that you need to be on campus.
